With the problem of cars parked on the bend of this road, and the number of people pulling up to collect post from the GPO sorting office, i would have thought the best bet was to use this land as a car park.
i echo this, i did and do park on the road next to it when i collect parcels from there, i have also admittedly parked in the Pub
car park but that's usually quite busy as well.
there's LOADS of new flats going up around new brighton and it's a shame, could have used that land for better things, i always thought the old lookers site would make a decent concrete skate-park but i imagine residents may not like it, understandably too.
ideally it would be a small department type store or something like that with multiple small shops but again, finances etc, it'll probably end up another bloody tesco or flats.
